Hi,
I think it would have been convenient to access variables in Tradestation Data Window from EL.
Tradestation have access to them (as displayed in Data Window) and some of these variables are available from Tradestation like High, Low, Open Close and so on.
But other plotted variables from Indicators and ShowMe's.. are apparently (to me!) not so easily available. Can anyone please tell me how this can be achieved, or is it just not possible?
I really will appreciate your response.
In advance, Thanks.

From what ive managed to collect this is not possible. I myself started a thread entitled Accesing other indicator values.
But after asking around i simply got the reply that you copy and paste codes inbetween to give functionality to different indicators. What you can do is to extract the info to an CSV file and use that file as input into your new indicator.

How were you able to write the contents of the data window to a file at the creation of a new bar? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks. I found that but I am trying to figure out how to get the data from the data window to the file, specifically the data that is coming from other indicators.

Need to put the indicators into the Strategy first, but then

Fileappend(txtfile, NumToStr(Date,0) + "," + NumToStr(rsi(close, 10) ,2) + "," + NumToStr(Your Indicator, 0)+ Newline);

Thanks for all of the timely responses! To clarify, the data I need from the data window comes from third party indicators so I am assuming I don't have access to that data as a variable in EL. If there is a way to access custom indicator data from the data window in EL that is really what I need. I would prefer to reference it in code, but was drawing conclusions form this thread that that is not possible so a possible solution is to write the data window data to disk and then read the file and reference it that way. Any help to this end would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

gdsrev,

as far as I am aware you can't access the data window with code. Your best bet might be to have the vendor customize a version of the indicator for your that outputs the values you need.
Alternatively you can use TS's build in data export option and manually export the bar and indicator data.
